ATC Forum To Promote Racehorse Ownership
The Australian Turf Club has launched the first of a series of events to promote racehorse ownership amongst its Members and the wider public. The ATC Owners Experience Forum will be held in the Longines Owners Pavilion at Royal Randwick this Saturday (17 December) before the running of the feature Summer meeting, Inglis Villiers Day. An expert panel featuring a variety of participants from across the racing industry will share insights and talk about the benefits of horse ownership, from 11.30am to 1pm. The panel will include champion Sydney trainers Gai Waterhouse and Chris Waller, Inglis National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy, Aushorse CEO Tom Reilly, Newgate Managing Director Henry Field, James Harron, Managing Director of James Harron Bloodstock, and leading owner, thoroughbred breeder and ATC Director Julia Ritchie. Australian Turf Club Executive General Manager of Racing James Heddo said the day was a unique opportunity to gain some clues into buying a potential champion. "We will hear from people who have owned and trained winners of the Golden Slipper, Melbourne Cups and Cox Plates to name a few, as well as those who have owned, sold or bought horses to win many of our biggest races,'' Heddo said.
